This Kentucky baked chicken is perfect for an outdoor summer meal that your whole family will love. Try this delicious roasted chicken that's baked to perfection.

Mix the buttermilk with the lemon rind, garlic, celery salt, pepper, paprika, mustard and herbs. Mix well, pour over chicken. Marinate for 3 hours or overnight.

Preheat the oven to gas 7, 220ºC, fan 200ºC.

Place the flour on a plate, remove the chicken from the marinade and roll the pieces in the flour. Place the drumsticks on a lightly oiled baking tray and spray with a little oil. Roast for 15 minutes in the oven then spray again with a little more oil.

Cook for a further 15-20 minutes until the chicken is golden and no longer pink in the centre. Serve with oven chips and ketchup.
